bit of a squeeze…

Sparked off by a recent post on my artist friend Elaine Phipps’ blog, my fascination (ie. nosiness) with the interiors of other artists’ working studios (especially small ones), once again reared its head…

how do other artists use the space…? what do other artists read…? what materials do other artists use…? what do other artists do for storage…?

…or is it just me?

This led to my ‘wandering’ about with my camera in my own studio yesterday (although it’s too small for wandering, more like stumbling from one corner to another)…

So here are a few corners from my studio…

Don’t forget to check out Elaine’s then perhaps show me some of yours?

  1. Love the details! The space looks like it was the size of mine prior to this year – and I managed to create a 7’X11′ triptych in that space! Room to move around in is good.

  2. Hi, thanks for your pictures, true artistic inspirations, I would love a space of my own to be creative. Unfortunately I have to use the dining table and put my stuff away all the time which is frustrating.

    • Thanks Ronnie, glad you enjoyed the images. Yes, I am lucky to have a dedicated space, however small. Many artists and craftspeople use the kitchen table like yourself. I hope you have a creative space to call your own soon.

  3. I really enjoy this post, in particular the crayon pics and the photo of a pot of brushes. I too find myself inspired by some of the images I see in my everyday life, you have now motivated me to reach for my camera(phone) and record these little scenes. x
